    Yeah, theres nothing wrong with any accent, I'm just saying that the typical american perception of a 'british' accent isn't true, I'm sure alot of americans would even go as far as to think Britain and Scotland are different places - after all one is where the queen and jeffry from the fresh prince comes from and the other is where braveheart lived!

    [I know not all americans are that ignorant so quit the whine before anyone begins! ]

    Hinglish,
    It's Hindi + English..
    Hindi is india's national language.
    and most people here use this accent..
    I was born intelligent,
    But Google ruined me.

    I don't have an accent. What do I choose in the poll?
    Everyone who uses bandwidth to refer to the
    amount of data transferred should also start
    using phrases like "I travelled a distance of
    120mph today.". Have fun attracting laughter.

    Perhaps my understanding of Mensch is incorrect. Yes I am male and yes I am human most of the time, but I am none of the usual characteristics associated with Mensch.

    It was sort of a game on my part, I am German and the word Mensch in german means just "human". Since we are in the thread of the different accents ... That reminds me. When I came first to the US, my english was not too great. So when I did not understand something and said so to some people, they just repeated the same thing in a louder voice. I got plenty of laughs out of that one - Datura

    NP, besides talking slowly, I am easily confused as well. And don't say "You poor Mensch" (hehe)
